Meet the Manager: Myra Reitsma


Hello! I'm Myra, the Manager of NumberWorks'nWords here in Palmerston North.

I grew up here in the Manawatū and love it – mostly for all the places I can walk my dogs! I started out at NumberWorks'nWords as a maths tutor in 2015 and have made my way through the ranks to become the manager in 2022. The best part of my job is seeing the students grow in their self-confidence and reach their goals – nothing beats witnessing that “Aha!” moment when a child clicks with a skill!

I’m always keen to have a chat about students and make a plan about how we can help them reach their potential. Give me a call or pop into our centre – I can't wait to meet you!

We enrolled our daughter to improve her maths capability. What we discovered is she had the capability, but needed a different environment to feel confident in her own ability. The team at NumberWorks'nWords are great and work with the parent. They took the information we supplied and have turned her around. She is now able to rattle off maths facts that she had learned but was afraid to share. I believe that this team will also support your child through exam pressures and give good straightforward advice and skills that they can use to achieve maximum results in an exam situation.

It has been amazing to see our daughter progress since attending NumberWorks'nWords but more importantly, she has gained confidence in herself and a passion for learning!

— J. Freeman

We love the individualised approach to our son's learning goals, whilst he is still integrated into a class-style environment. This has given him more confidence in his school classroom and the maths exercises have helped him achieve better results at school.

— S. Murphy

It has been great for my daughter. She has gained so much confidence, as she was falling behind and getting upset at not understanding her maths at school. The teachers their are such nice people and they provide an amazing environment for the kids. My daughter absolutely loves attending and I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with it.

— M. Anne

Great tutors. They provide the children with a programme that caters to their specific needs.

— H. Giles

NumberWorks'nWords and their learning approach has been instrumental to the academic success of our son during his time at school.
